Everyone we saw supporting abortion rights at the Downriver Rally for Bodily Autonomy in Wyandotte
On Thursday, an estimated 1,800 people gathered at Wyandotte's Bishop Park for the Downriver Rally for Bodily Autonomy to protest in support of the right to abortion. The rally and march comes days after the conservative U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that protected the right to abortions. The march was attended by Congresswoman Debbie Dingell and Jaime Churches, a 5th grade teacher who is running for state Representative for District 27, which includes Gibraltar, Grosse Ile, Trenton, Riverview, Wyandotte, and the south of Southgate. The group Reproductive Freedom for All is gathering signatures to put the issue of protecting abortion rights on the November ballot.
